Soundboard Feed
SBD mix by Wayne (forever-long house foh mixer), and recorded by Kurt M.'s Sony D8, as supplied to Mike French, as related below:

This is a patch tape, and a first-clone of the master, that I received in trade with Kurt M., for my ambient recording. It was originally the first deck out of the sbd console, until "Tom" arrived and exerted his domination in the sbd pecking order.
I had arrived a couple of hours early, at the request of the bands archivist/friend - Kurt M., and I acquired a sbd feed from Wayne upon arrival for Kurts tape, as he was not able to attend.
I met the players, helped set the room up (folding chairs), etc. I helped in setting up, basically speaking. I was given the blessing to run tape for this intimate gathering.
Because I was recording from the room, as an ambient recording, and the mixing console was in a remote room, Wayne agreed to run the sbd recording deck for me, as we had established a "relationship", and, recording levels during soundcheck.
Then, minutes before the show, Tom, shows up, and unplugged the now soundchecked recording sbd feed, established by Wayne and myself literally hours before, and he plugged his D8 into the lead of the feed.
Both Wayne and I had suggested to him that the feed order had long been established, and, in fact, soundchecked.
But, Tom, insisted that wasn't how it was going to be, so, he unplugged me, and put himself in front, insisting that he would monitor my now loose non-established recording levels.
Sbd recordings are not my thing. I was there to do an ambient recording, so, in the interest of not raising a fuss in my first introduction to the band as an recordist, I retired to my ambient rig for the evening.
Well, what you see is what you get. Tom really didn't do much to monitor the deck downstream of him, and there is clipping present in this recording. The levels are hot and clipping, though, the recording is totally listenable. Fortunately the clipping is low-level, and not very audibly distorted. Good Job Tom!
